Thanks!

To split up wav files from an audio CD track into seperate files based on gaps of silence I would go with:

For MP3's and other files already on the drive, I would go with:

The NCH stuff seems to work after the trial period but there may be limited features. I usually keep their installer file in case I need to "refresh". This is one of their truly free ones though.

There is not a commerical program out there that cannot be replaced by a free one. I have had no luck with free operating systems though... I hope you are windows.

3.1 was far more stable than anything since. I never had a crash that I can remember until 2000 came out. I started programming on a TRS80 in basic and got a VIC-20, then C64, 128 and lastly the Amiga until commodore dropped the ball for some reason. I did a little bit of tinker in an apple 2C and and a TI-99 if my memory serves me right. I'd love to see the look on the face of the "whizkids" of today if they flipped a switch and only had a blinking dot, no hard drive and no internet connection. You rule.

Until you buy some PC's from an out of business company and don't have the friggin windows login passwords and try to reinstall the OS with the disk that came with them and cannot get a friggin license from scumbags at MS even though you opened the wrapper on the disk. Then you try to install Ubuntu just to get in and crack the passwords to the machines you rightly own and waste many hours of your life and finding it's going to cost a few hundred to give your kid a $50 computer. Fuck windows and fuck ubuntu for not installing properly. Looking for a solution if you know any. I wiped the one drive clean but have not gone that far on the other one. The bastards are still charging over a hundred for XP when Vista is almost obsolete, go figure. And their stupid trial versions of office suck too, used to be free with windows, why'd they pull that asshole move? I replaced them with openoffice good riddance. Try to extort me when works is installed free, and how about upgrading IE? They default their lame live search and all this MS crap you have to change. Who doesn't use google?
